Topic Subject:No scenario folder? Here is the solution

Hi everyone. I've been trying to find a scenario so that I can upload it. It's the first proper scenario I've made after playing since about 2001 when I got the demo game in a Nutri-Grain box (good memories). In the time I've practiced a bit with scenarios, and I think I have made a praise worthy scenario, although not historically accurate.

The problem is, I can't find the scenario in my "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires\scenario" folder. I've tried changing my options to view compatability files, and I have always allowed to see hidden files. The file is also not in my Appdata folder, and I can't use the search tool to find the scenario, which makes me realise it must be hidden. The scenario still works fine when I open the game though. I moved my entire Age of Empires file away, and the scenario was no longer there in the game, so I moved it back and there it was again. For this reason, it must be hidden somewhere pretty damn hard to find.

Any suggests would be appreciated,


Edit: I finally found out the problem. I set the Windows options up so that I could see compatibility files, but I never clicked the big "Compatibility Files" button above my window when I'm in the Age of Empires folder. I presumed that it would just show me the files like all other things.

For anyone else having this problem, here's a step by step way to find your file (Windows 7 64 Bit):
1) Control Panel>Folder Options>View Tab>Show Hidden files, folders and drives>Search Tab>Include compressed files (ZIP, CAB...)>Apply
2) Go to your Age of Empires folder (C:\Program Files (x86 if 64 Bit)\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires
3) Click the big "Compatibility files" button above, next to Burn, New Folder etc.
4) Click the scenario folder, and there your saved scenarios should be.
